The City of Rockingham has given the green light to a proposed tavern in Baldivis.
Councillors unanimously approved the proposed pub on Fifty Road after reviewing the initial application from 2021.
The single-storey ‘stable’-designed tavern would include a bar and kitchen areas, an undercover alfresco area, a liquor store with drive-through service and 140 parking bays.
The 6502sqm tavern would operate from 6am to midnight Mondays to Saturdays and 10am to midnight on Sundays, with a capacity of 834 patrons.
The city held public consultation in 2021 and received 27 submissions, with 19 in support and eight objecting.
The concerns were similar to those of the city, which also raised concerns about the scale of the tavern, noise and car parking shortfall.
After meeting the city’s Design and Review Panel (DRP), more information and amended plans were submitted.
A revised application was submitted last month with new plans for waste management, bushfire management and landscape plans.
The proposal remains subject to further building applications and management plans, which will need to be submitted and approved by the city.
It will go to the Joint Development Assessment Panel on June 3 for more assessment.
